The Christian Science Way of Life

Talk by Maryl Walters


Free Public Talk on Thursday, April 19th, 2018, 7:00 PM at The ARC, Activity and Recreation Center, 1701 W. Ash St., Columbia, MO

This talk is much about loving your “enemies”/adversaries/political opponents/bullies/criminals even. Maryl begins by welcoming everyone, of whatever religious affiliation each has or doesn’t have, or whether “spiritual and not religious”, and of whatever political views—how to come together for the common good.

She gives an amazing and delightful true story of a debate between an African American preacher and a Ku Klux Klan member. And she describes how an oyster, when it gets a bit of grit inside its shell, protects itself from irritation by covering it with layer upon layer of a substance we call mother-of-pearl, making a beautiful gem. And how we also can shield ourselves from irritation by making a protective gem in our thought.

A central point she makes is why and how we can rebuke abominable acts, but without condemning the individual. Also, whether Christian or not, can we profit from considering the example of the story of Jesus, who said of those who were crucifying him, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”? And what does practicing and expressing the quality of forgiveness have to do with our experiencing mental, emotional and even physical health?

Maryl also gave a lecture entitled, "The Christian Science Way of Life” on October 6, 2016, for 167 students in Dr. Bob Flanagan's class, Introduction to Religion, Department of Religious Studies, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO.
